It has been quite the year, friends. I cooked, I ate, and I let my husband do the dishes. I made it a whole year without eating meat. I finished grad school, packed up shop, and moved with Jake and Lily from Boston to Pittsburgh. I watched a little girl go from toddling to walking to uncatchable. She talks in real sentences now and can easily be passed off as a child instead of a baby. She has refined her love for all things Mickey Mouse to a fine art and she has made me realize how exciting poop in the potty can be to a mother. I appreciated loved ones, made new friends, and kept special, far away people close at heart. What a wonderful year 2012 has been. Thank you, thank you, thank you for taking this journey with me. Here are 12 of my favorite recipes from 2012. I hope you liked them as much as I did! Creamy Roasted Red Pepper Soup with Cilantro-Lime Sour Cream
Now, let's have a fun, daring, and delicious 2013!
